Exercise 9.5

Using the given data file (Ex9_5_NLR) in Matlab format or text format, which contains two predictors x1 and x2 and predictand y data (80 observations), develop a nonlinear regression model of y as a function of x1 and x2. Briefly describe the approach taken (e.g. MLP, SVR, ensemble, etc.). Forecast ytest using the new test predictor data x1test and x2test provided.
